Joe Biden will be the DNC nominee for President, if he is still alive in July. This is good news, because it means the nominee will not be Kamala Harris, Cory Booker, Elizabeth Warren, Amy Klobuchar, Beto O’Rourke, Pete Buttigieg, Michael Bloomberg, Tom Steyer or Bernie Sanders. All considered to be real possibilities by the MSM. But, the MSM is wrong about everything, so this should be no surprise.
Joe Biden didn’t win the nomination. He just stayed alive while the others all self-destructed. Just a couple of weeks ago, no one thought Biden had any chance. He had been creamed in Iowa and New Hampshire. He had no money. His campaign rallies were a joke. He was making daily gaffs. His campaign was doomed to failure. The other DNC candidates just ignored him.
But then, a series of miracles. It started with Michael Bloomberg and Tom Steyer deciding to throw away millions of dollars trying to buy the election. They both failed miserably, but in the meantime people like Klobuchar and Buttigieg couldn’t get a word in edgewise. Combine this with the idiotic impeachment farce, which made it impossible for anyone to campaign and it was a perfect political storm.
Bernie had victory within his grasp. Everyone else was fading and it looked like it was down to him and Biden. He thought Biden would be easy prey. But Bernie accidentally told the truth and he burned his own house down. He started praising Castro, of all people, for a great education program and universal health care. He even praised Hugo Chavez who made Venezuela such a paradise on earth. When this became public, his support dropped like a stone. While there are still a lot of people feeling the Berne, there aren’t nearly enough of them.
The result was that Joe Biden, who had been ignored by everyone, ended up being the only one left standing. Odds are this even surprised Biden. He woke up Sunday morning with a surprise landslide victory in South Carolina. Then, two days later, he basically ran the table on Super Tuesday.
Joe Biden is still Joe Biden and he is no more capable of campaigning for President of the United States than he was last week. He is also the presidential candidate least likely to survive a full term in office. As a result, today begins one of the most critical campaigns in our nations history, the campaign to be Joe Biden’s running mate. The logical thing would be to choose someone who is capable of being president, ready, willing and able to take over when necessary. But this is not your father’s Democratic Party. This time the VP candidate must be a female, preferably black or Hispanic. A nationwide woman hunt is already underway. The results are likely to be frightening.
In the meantime, the Trump campaign is conducting workshops on how to restrain the giggles. This reminds me of when the DNC nominated Hubert Humphrey to be the nominee in 1968. Hubert Humphrey took the stage in Chicago and shouted: “yippee.” They were also shouting “yippee” someplace else. That would be the Nixon campaign headquarters. They were also the ones still shouting “yippee” in November.
